Are you like me and hang onto bottles of unusual shapes and colors, hoping to find a use for them someday?
Years ago an aesthetician persuaded me to buy some skin serum after a facial. It came in little, brown ground-glass bottles that reminded me of something you would find in an old apothecary shop. And very much like the apothecary treatments of days gone by, the serum was useless and a complete waste of money. But I liked the bottles and hid them away. Yesterday I found them again and managed to turn lemons into lemonade be creating this charming pair of hanging bud vases.

I am slowly sorting through my girls' winter clothes. Miss Juju had a pair of jeans that were quickly becoming flood pants and my plan was to turn them into cut-offs for the summer. I measured and prepared to cut, then stopped to examine the extra denim that would soon be tossed in the trash. I didn't want to be wasteful and challenged myself to incorporate the extra fabric to add a little pizzazz to an otherwise boring pair of shorts. I decided that side-ties would be a cute addition to the bow pockets on this particular pair of jeans.
